    One of my greatest treasures ever. This album is worth the money. But money alone is not sufficient to pay all the happy emotions and moments that I had with it. Orbital forever. An example of vinyl, which I will use as an old man to tell my children of the '90s and all that great time. I like them all. With Lush and Halycon on board you can't get wrong.

      I agree that this is Orbital's crowning achievement through their long and accomplished career. Here you have two of the biggest Orbital singles ever - Halcyon + On + On and Lush. The flow in this disc is better than on any of their others, with Snivilisation coming in a close secnond place (IMO). Years later, this is one of those albums of the 90s that stands the test of time and still will 30 years in the future.

        Orbital's finest moment without question and one of the greatest electronic albums of all time. This is intelligent techno that is full of ideas, inventiveness, beauty, sonic landscapes and breathtaking production. An album that rocks and is incredibly dancefloor friendly but at the same time it's a stunning long player that needs to be heard at home to appreciate it's undenying beauty. A perfect dance music album from start to finish.

          amazing. orbital at their peak. however, and here's the rub, the original cassette version tracklisting kicks off with "time becomes" then straight into lush 3-1 and lush 3-2 then into impact and then right into remind. planet of the shapes starts off side 2.

          on the cd version planet of the shapes is the second track and there's a break between impact and remind. criminal. it really upsets the flow. buy the tape or edit it yourself!
